New Scuderia Ferrari Team Principal Maurizio Arrivabene has stated that the Italian team are aiming to win at least two Grand Prix in 2015, following a difficult 2014 Formula One season.
Arrivabene replaced Marco Mattiacci as Team Principal following the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and the team have just completed a lengthily restructuring programme within the organisation. Pat Fry is gone and has been replaced by Mercedes AMG PETRONAS F1 Team’s Jock Clear.
Sebastian Vettel has also joined the team for the 2015 Formula On season and will partner Kimi Raikkonen, who remains with the team for a second season after returning to the Scuderia for the first time since 2009. Ferrari’s last victory came at the 2013 Chinese Grand Prix which was won by Fernando Alonso.
Ferrari have one of the strongest line up’s in terms of world championship victories as between them Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel have 5 championships.
The Italian team will be hoping that the changes they have made ahead of the 2015 Formula One season will help them to move back up the grid having finished the 2014 season in 4th place in the Constructors championship behind Mercedes AMG PETRONAS, Infiniti Red Bull Racing and the Williams Martini Racing Team.
